I was thinking more on the browser side of things. If we could somehow trick the browser into thinking it had visisted every link on the page that would be great. But I don't think there's a javascript method, except using pop-up windows and that's just evil.

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.

    That would be great, but probably difficult/impossible. You could try hacking at mozilla or the beta perl web browser I saw metioned on this site a while back called artemis. If you could add some special tags/cookie ability to one of those, then submit a patch to vroom to get the perlmonks system to detect the ability and call it if availible....

    But yeah it would be very nice if it could work like you say.

[Corion]: marto: I believe nowadays, at least window.opener should not be set anymore (except maybe within the same domain)
[Corion]: But I wouldn't really know as I don't use iexplore much (except at $work) and mostly surf with JS disabled (except at $work :) )
[marto]: yeah, this is at work, where some intranet app launches links via When users close the intranet page so that only the new JS opened windows exist, clicking URLs in an email (or whatever) don't open
[Corion]: marto: It somewhat makes sense that the reduced popup window doesn't get new URLs, but it makes less sense that no new browser window opens :)
